Test Calling Sources

When we test, PSTN calls originate from

  • Denver Colorado on a variety of carriers (default high call volume source)
  • Washington DC or NYC on Level3
  • Richmond, VA on Comcast, Level3, Verizon or Windstream.

Maintenance Windows

The call path may be subject to the telecom industry standard 12 midnight to 6am network maintenance windows. During these times, carrier maintenance may make test calls fail.  Sometimes, carrier maintenance is actually the issue we find with monitoring! We choose to first detect it then maybe adjust the tests to not fail the test. For instance, we may monitor you on two separate 800 numbers taking two separate paths into your PBX. Maintenance would cause the test to fail to VoIP trunk A and thus you are alerted but from the call reports sent, you see your PBX answered the test call to VoIP trunk B. From this you could point the finger at the carrier and not your PBX. The carrier says their is nothing they can do. So, you adjust both 800 numbers to round robin terminate calls between to VoIP trunks A, then B. Now your system is more fault tolerant.
